    E & J Burke were beer bottlers from Dublin, Ireland. They bottled Guinness Foreign Stout.

    This Brewery was Called Edward & John Burke, Ltd in 1934 & then changed to Burke Brewery Inc. sometime in 1934 & lasted until 1949. Changed to Arthur Guinness & Sons, Inc from 1949-54. The beer caps/crowns are usually orange with a black Cat pictured on them LEON.

    Hey Joel, I dug an amber one down here on the Ms coast, so they must be scattered all over the place. I just assumed mine was a beer. Thanks, Marvin

    We dig those bottles quite often in Texas too, some Bimal and some ABM. Yours looks like the ABM variety which would be early 1900's. They might bring about $3. at a flea market.

    They also had an office here in Long Island City, bottles turn up on a regular basis on eBay with the label, and a L.I City address.
